2012 – can you believe it? It feels like the time flies by way to fast… Still, it’s almost here, the exciting and unpredictable new year.
The year of the Water Dragon (which technically begins on 23 January 2012) needs to be celebrated in a lavish style. The clothes should be made of light fabrics, creams and blues. Jewellery must be worn, either gold or gold with light blue precious stones. The table deco needs to be in creams and whites and include some gold accents. And because my favourite planet Venus is still circling around, you should also have fresh flowers and something sweet on your dinner table in order to please the Goddess.
This isn’t something I just made up because I’m experience a burst of creativity. In fact I’ve heard it from an astrologist invited by one of those TV shows I do watch from time to time and I thought I’d share, so we all make a beautiful effort that may bring us more luck in 2012.
For me 2011 was a good year. I’ve met a few wonderful people who became an essential part of my life. I’ve started this blog that in a way helped me deal with some demons from the past and re-discover my passion for writing. The work’s been good, too, and although I don’t really like talking too much about work, I can say one thing – if you have a dream, you work hard for it and you keep knocking at hundreds of doors, sooner or later the dream, whatever it might be, will become a reality.
With just a few hours left before the new year comes, I would like to wish you a happy new year, full of surprises, laughter, warmth and love, silly little moments and precious memories. If you follow Fashioned by Love or simply found it today by chance consider yourself loved, hugged and welcomed to my little blog.
Happy New Year!
